What to serve with Fried Green Tomatoes?

I just got a bag of green tomatoes from my Dad which I am looking forward to cooking up but I was wondering what would one typically serve with them? Hopefully a weeknight possible meal.
Thanks in Advance!
Fried chicken or catfish is definitely the classic choice. If you want to save some time (and fat) you could try pork chops milanese as well.
Picawicca's Mom is right! Green tomatoes are pretty tart and something creamy is a good choice. White remoulades are popular choices. Great topping a salad.
I've also had them as the base, instead of bread, for an Eggs Benedict-style dish with country ham and hollandaise. They're great with fish because of the tart, almost citrusy taste. And with creamy pastas. Anything with mild cheeses.
They make great pickles and relishes so it doesn't surprise me at all that they'd love pico de gallo.
They're a great vegetable so no reason why you couldn't serve them as a side with anything. No reason why it would have to be something you think of as Southern.
